Drove an hour, waited & waited, paid $14 parking, never seen..., Apr 17, 2013|
Called for appointment, told 10:45 a.m. avail, I explained we had a 2 p.m. appointment same day over an hour away from her office. Let them decide if I should take the 10:45 a.m. appointment. They reassured me it would be fine. Waited 1 hr, 15 mins then asked how much longer. Told 3 patients in exam rooms had not been seen & no more exam rooms available (i.e. it would be quite awhile). Asked why so backed up and was told she was over booked (no emergencies causing back log). Drove 1 hour, paid $14 parking, had to leave for 2 p.m. appointment without being seen.
Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013|
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...

Very pleasant and kind staff! I'm so pleased with my cataract surgery. I would recommend Dr. Conrad and his staff to everyone. It was wonderful to finally be able to read again. I have been a patient ever since!
HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH DOCTOR NEELU/ABHAY AGARWAL..., Feb 17, 2013|
I am relating this incident to DESCRIBE WHAT I BELIEVE IS negligence and poor knowledge of Dr. Neelu and Abhay Agarwal.The subject of this unfortunate malpractice is my grand mother.Who was then 82 yrs old,in good health and lead an active lifestyle.In 2010,she suddenly started to suffer from a watery discharge and bleeding.I immediately called my primary physician,Dr Neelu Agarwal for advice.I explained the problem,provided medical history and asked if I should take her to the ER.The doctor advised against this and recommended to bring my grand mother to her office the following day instead.She ran a urine test, pap smear and concluded it was only urine infection and prescribed antibiotics.
A couple weeks later the situation persisted. Dr Abhay Agarwal saw her as well and had the same conclusion.Since there was no improvement I took her back to Dr Neelu after few days again.Advicing against a visit to the gynecologist/ specialist she concluded that the problem still persisted due to use of TOLIET PAPER and even prescribed a external cream for the same.The problem went on for over 2 months.After which the bleeding subsided by itself until the following year in 2011,when she started to suffer from the same problem again.Trusting them I took my grand mother back to the same doctors again,same tests were conducted and same conclusion which was use of TOILET PAPER!
I finally decided to seek a third opinion seen this had gone on for too long.The gynecologist was very surprised by Dr Neelu and Abhay’s prognosis.
This unfortunately turned out to be UTERINE CANCER!Which if was detected wisely in 2010 by them would have saved her life. Today her cancer has now spread to the lungs and is in her final stage and is suffering terribly.We continued to check with other doctors and were told that all medical students are taught very early in there medical education that any woman after menopause having any kind of discharge should be checked for MALAGNANCY.I even did I qui
Her license should be REVOKED, at the very least. Don't entrust your health to this woman...., Nov 28, 2012|
This woman verbally assaulted me for a solid hour in an exam room. Stupidly, I meekly tried to "defend" myself--under the completely misguided notion that there was anything rational about the assault. She railed at me that I was going to DIE one minute & then later railed at me that I was NOT going to die (insinuating, I guess, that I was taking my serious health issues too...seriously), and then ranted about how I arrived at my appointments "so meticulously put together..." The insanity of the encounter, for me, only rivaled that of my dad violently abusing me as a child. When I was folding my list of questions up to leave, she yelled at me to sit down in my chair. She was so close to blowing right past yelling & becoming physical that I was paralyzed where I sat. For at least 1 full hour I endured this woman's wrath. The cherry on top of this encounter was that she charged both me and my insurance company for the privilege of abusing me. I have very serious health issues & I felt too traumatized to seek out another doctor for 2 years following this assault. I thought she was great when I first started seeing her. After being subjected to the monster, however, I look back & see something different--the exams (gyn) and biopsies she performed on me leave me feeling as though I've been completely & thoroughly violated. She also told me completely erroneous things, like my thyroid would be destroyed and my thyroid needed to be surgically removed. She has absolutely no business being in this business of *helping* people & guiding their health. Do not trust yourself or your loved ones to this woman. You cannot possibly know what will happen & how damaging it will be.
